Bakermat’s Deepest Fears

Dutch DJ and music producer Bakermat stopped by the K-Swiss pop-up studio during the Nexus Lounge Amsterdam to talk about his latest projects, his ADE experience, and to take the Nexus Take 5 Series.

Bakermat started his music career while studying psychology at Utrecht University and moonlighting as a DJ in his spare time. He released his first singles in 2012 and became an instant hit in the club scene. Bakermat’s music has a distinct style, with a mix of electronic, deep and tropical house, and techno, that is produced with an eye towards minimalism, and features jazz and soul influences.

While he was in the K-Swiss pop-up studio, Bakermat talked to us about his new releases, and about his summer DJing all over the world.  

On the question of how he handles jet lag, he said:

“Oh um, I don’t handle it very well. I hate it. I take some sleeping pills sometimes just to force myself to sleep.”

When asked what scares him, Bakermat told us:

“What scares me? What scares me is snakes, spiders, all that kind of stuff. It scares me to death. I hate every kind of buggy kind of insect. Oh man.”


When asked who he’d take with him if he were stranded in the Amazon Rainforest for a year, he told us:

“Oh that’s a good question. Man, probably Sam Feldt, ‘cuz he’s a really good dude. We always hang out. We just hung out in Brazil and we always have fun. Anyone in the world, even people that I don’t know? Well, I’m gonna take the Daft Punk guys then. Dude, I want to meet them. They’re interesting enough I [think it’d be fun], and [if I hate them] I’ll just kill them, haha, I’m in the rainforest, I don’t care. So I got a really good buddy of mine, I’ve got an interesting duo, now I gotta go for a joker. Um, I would take Dylan Francis because he’s really funny.”
